Although the book is dated (1992), there are plenty of clear pictures & diagrams to enable you to understand exactly what is being demonstrated.
The book deals with correct form & technique in stances, blocks, strikes, punches & kicks. It goes into detail about how a certain move would be executed correctly and explains both good & bad posture and the consequences and damage to muscles, bones & ligaments of bad or incorrect body alignment.
The author trained with Sensei Kanazawa and also trained & represented the SKI for many years. There Forward by Kanazawa at the beginning is a glowing testimony to Paul.
I highly recommend this book to any karate instructor (Shotokan) or any karate-ka that has ambitions to go beyond Shodan and wants to reach retirement without being a cripple.
There are a couple of "tiny" mistakes in the photo's where occasionally the performer has his toes curled forward or his head dipped forward (as in mai geri), but if you're an instructor yourself, these inaccuracies will be instantly apparent.
It's great for instructors or for anyone starting in Karate to avoid mistakes and look after their bodies. It's also transferable for all sports.
